My Ultra Red Clio 200: Zaino lovin'...

Hi all,

I'm a relative newbie on here despite browsing as a non-member for a few years. I ordered a Clio 200 back in March and took delivery in May, a few weeks before my Birthday.

The spec, for those interested is:

Renaultsport Clio 200 'Full Fat'
Ultra Red

Options:

Cup Chassis
Speedline wheels in satin black
Recaro seats
Carbon dash pack
RS Monitor
GT Spoiler
Cornering lights with projector lenses and black surrounds
Rear tints
Bluetooth handsfree & iPod dock

So pretty much every option bar the black roof, which I thought was a bit 'chav' and rear parking sensors, which I didn't like the look of, being stuck on the bumper.

The car has now covered almost 5k miles, having done the trip to Le Mans in June for the 24hr, which was incredible.

The only modifications so far are black centre caps for the Speedlines (Renault ships them with anthracite items... hmm), plain number plates, the front being slightly smaller. I have an HID kit to go into the projectors when time allows.

I also have a set of H&R springs to go on once I've bought some matching 16mm H&R spacers.

When I took delivery, I asked for the car to be unwashed and as 'factory' as possible. I set a day aside and corrected the few flaws in the paint using my G220 and Scholl finishing products... nothing too harsh but the results were great.

Since then, the car has been Amigo'd by DA and now wears multiple applications of Z2 with the occasional Z8 wipedown. The wheels are wearing Wheel Armour and the tyres Wolfgang's Gel. All plastics were treated with C4.

Here are some pictures that my girlfriend took, since she's infinitely better with a camera than I am.

Thanks for reading!

Chris

Thanks, I'll do a more detailed write-up of the process in later posts.

I've picked up a few new toys and products to try.
